  1. Binaries should be provided via Docker images

    To implement this in a Kubernetes native way for offline deployments, the binaries should be provided as Docker images and distributed through the Docker repositories that are already present in the k8s environment.

    Option 1 (intermediate): Allow Mount of Docker images in the MongoDBOpsManager resource for the path defined in automation.versions.directory. This would allow us to pre-package the binaries needed and bring up the OpsManager in a kubernetes native way. Everything else (e.g. agent downloading the tgz) would stay the same and still be the "OpsManger-way".

    Option 2 (long term): The MongoDB TGZ package is provided as Docker image by…

  3. Provide a feature to monitor the Alert payload being sent out from Ops Manager to the configured Webhook endpoint and etc.

    What is the problem that needs to be solved?
    Provide a feature to monitor the Alerts payload being sent out from Ops Manager to the configured Webhook endpoint and other AlertsServices endpoint.

    Why is it a problem? (the pain)
    Currently, Ops Manager does not log the successful/failed payload of the Alerts being sent out to the configured Webhook endpoint. It is difficult to diagnose the problem with the configured Alert Services.

  4. Add collection level statistics to the measurements API

    Get Database Measurements currently provides information from dbStats.

    Adding collection level statistics would be useful for gathering information via the API on a regular basis to measure growth of each collection and other metrics. Data Explorer functionality is not available via the API.

  5. Plugin for Moogsoft monitoring tools.

    Currently, Ops Manager does not have the plugin for Moogsoft monitoring tools, it would be great to add the feature to the future release of Ops Manager.

  6. Create localhost exception for POST /unauth/users API call

    The purpose of this request is for Ops Manager to implement a "localhost exception" for the API call POST /unauth/users so it can only be executed under two conditions:
    1. No other users exists in the setup.
    1. Ops Manager runs in "invitation only" mode.
    1. Ops Manager has not been configured for LDAP.
    1. The API call can only originate from an IP or alias that belongs to one of the Ops Manager Application server.

  7. Integration with Microsoft Teams

    Add third-party service integration for Microsoft Teams, as we do for Slack.
    Most likely the following can be leveraged to achieve the integration: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/teams-proactive-messaging

  8. ability to re-order alerts

    when you add new alert there is no way in GUI to order/reorder them. It's hard to maintain large set of alerts.

  9. add details to alert Query Targeting: Scanned / Returned to identify what triggered it

    If you want to catch full scan on collection you could set up alert "Query Targeting: Scanned / Returned > 1".
    OPS Manager does not provide any details where it was triggered.
    it would be nice to get db/collection/query which caused this issue. Query still can be fast (for example, not many document in collection yet or hardware is idle/fast at the moment) and will not go to slow operation group.

  11. MongoDB Agent alters the root $PATH variable

    The MongoDB Agent installation via RPM adds the /var/lib/mongodb-mms-automation/bin to root's $PATH by placing the mongodb-mms-automation-agent.sh script under the /etc/profile.d:
    $ pwd
    /etc/profile.d
    $ sudo cat mongodb-mms-automation-agent.sh
    export PATH=/var/lib/mongodb-mms-automation/bin:${PATH}

    This breaks my customers security standards.

    Moving the script does not appear to affect the functionality of the MongoDB Agent and updating the agent via the OM UI does not add back the script.

    We would like the ability to either select the contents of the MongoDB Agent rpm or be asked during the rpm installation whether or not to install the mongodb-mms-automation-agent.sh script.

  12. Allow configuring custom builds at the organisation or global level (Admin panel)

    It must be done at the project level at the moment, generating an operational costs for those environments with a large number of projects.

  13. Implement IAM role authentication for AWS SES in Ops Manager

    At the moment using AWS SES for email delivery in Ops Manager requires AWS Access Key and Secret Key. Please implement the IAM role authentication for this option as it has been done for the S3 endpoints.

  14. Ability to customize subject line for System & Global Alerts

    Currently there's no way to customize the subject line of either a system or global alert. The subject line only has the project name & time. It doesn't even say why the alert was generated until the email alert is opened. Having the ability to modify the subject line, even if it's to certain predefined fields such as alert condition for example would be helpful in addressing alerts in an efficient and effective manner.

  15. Provide safety mechanism for limiting MongoDB versions amongst different projects

    Restrict the user depending on the type of project: dev, prod, etc to select a specific set of MongoDB Server versions that can be deployed.

    Prior to 4.2 this was accomplished with version manager.

  16. Periodically notify users of unused versions located in versions directory

    As a safety measure for admins in Ops Manager to avoid facing issues due to unnecessary disk occupation under the Ops Manager installation directory:

    Send periodic notifications (configurable) i.e: once a month; to notify what binaries are not being used by none of the components in their environment so they can evaluate to delete them in order to free up space on their Ops Manager servers.

  17. Apply Project Maintenance Windows to Global Alerts

    Apply Project Maintenance Windows to Global Alerts

    Make the existing Project-level maintenance windows also silence Global alerts associated with the Project.

    We have many projects that share the Global Alerts and do not want to turn off all global alerts as we still need that alerting for the projects that are not being worked on.

    In combination with the existing API for Project Maintenance Windows, this really allows full control.

  18. Allow configuring Ops Manager to ignore proxy for internal requests

    A very common Enterprise HTTP Proxy configuration is to deny requests from local networks (10.0.0.0/8, 172.16.0.0/12, 192.168.0.0/16).

    In hybrid mode, the Backup Mode attempts to download the binaries from itself locally through the proxy. This brings to errors as the proxy is blocking the local traffic.

  19. Ops Mgr "Insufficient oplog size" is confusing and prevents backups

    When using Ops Manager UI (I've not checked the API) to declare a MongoDB cluster to be backed up, Ops Manager tries to be a good citizen and check to see if the clusters oplogs are large enough, based on their recent usage to hold at least 3 hours worth of data based on the last 24 hours of usage patterns. if the check fails, the user is prevented from enabling backup and is shown the warning:

    "Insufficient oplog size: The oplog window must be at least 3 hours over the last 24 hours for all members of replica set…

  20. restore

    it would be useful to have directly in OpsManager the ability to restore a single database from shapshot.
